Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Two half brothers have competed against each other all their lives, now one is a private detective, the other a LAPD police officer, interestingly one is black and one white. Here they are forced together in the case of a disappearance and the novel swings into a violent, sleazy world of prostitution, drugs and bad money. Kellerman’s famed psychologist, Alex Delaware, makes a brief appearance in an advisory role only, which is also interesting.

Comparison: Harlan Coben, Mo Hayder, James Patterson.

Synopsis

True Detectives by Jonathan Kellerman

A vintage performance from the world's number one psychological thriller writer TRUE DETECTIVES follows Moe Reed and Aaron Fox on the twisted trail of a missing girl, a dark, baffling whodunit that forces the brothers to put aside their mutual animus -- and to confront the unresolved family mystery that turned them into enemies. PIs can do things, legally, that cops can't. And cops have access to resources denied their private counterparts. Only by pooling their efforts -- and by consulting a man both brothers respect, psychologist Alex Delaware, do Fox and Reed stand a chance of peeling back the secrets in high places that explain the fate of an outwardly innocent young woman. And, by doing so, the brothers learn about much more than murder.
